In a thicket near a quarry in Westminster, MD
Deviated from the GPS directions to navigate to a dirt track I saw in the satellite photos. The sign said something about a quarry--no NO TRESPASSING signs! Success!
Drove a ways on a muddy dirt track. Long grasses an stems tickled the undercarriage of my car. Had to gun it through a couple of deep mud puddles. Once again the 4WD came in handy. I doubt my old Mazda Protege would have made it. At one point the muddy water splashed all over my hood and windshield and later, I noticed small clumps of mud on my roof. Once I parked, a deer path led me right to the spot.
Fairly straightforward. After this expedition, I headed to the hashpoint for the Baltimore graticule.
